Creating my own longworth chuck

Mike Schwing
I'm fortunate to have access to millions of dollars worth of tools where I teach woodturning, so I decided to build my own Longworth Chuck and took some pics and videos along the way. Mine is made from 1/2" aluminum I cut on our waterjet and powder coated in our own ovens. It works well, but have a vac chuck system on the way. Here's an album of the creation. (yes I can make these for you, we'd have to talk)
